|Let the memory of Tommy be with us forever|
"You would have been so proud of us all on Saturday dad. We gave mum a fabulous party but it wasn't the same without you. I know you are watching over us all and enjoying it anyway but it's not the same as seeing see you puff your chest out with pride at what you and mum have built over the years. She's a real star isn't she but then you knew that when you first saw her and said you would marry her - and you did! All the grandkids and great grandkids did you proud too. They are kind, caring and loving and I just know they are going to go out there and make the world a happier, kinder place. Miss you Dad xxx"
"Had a wonderful Birthday Party on Saturday 16th July 2016 to celebrate my 80th Birthday 15th July 2016. Lots of family members and friends we've accumulated over the years.....sang a song to remember you Tom....you are not forgotten. You would be proud of your 3 lovely daughters and their families. They have done us proud.....think about you lots and getting plenty of messages from you....but I am not moving..I am quite happy where I am."
Goodbyes hurt the most when the story was not finished.....Thinking of you today, on what would have been your 80th Birthday, and everyday. What a party we would have had if you had still been here with us. I'll be seeing you in all the old familiar places......"Till"...."Yours"..."
"Happy birthday xxx"
"Happy 80th birthday Dad. It's the 4th year without you. Always in our hearts and thoughts. Love and miss you so much. Hope you're having a party with all our loved ones up there. Love you ❤️❤️❤️❤️"
"Can't believe that it's been 4 years since we last saw you, or heard your voice,I miss you everyday it doesn't get easier dad, wish you were still here with us I know we are so lucky to have had all the years we did have some never get that but I wish you were still here with us, love and miss you always X number 2, one of the 3 richest kids in town xxxx"
"Tommy Lee, you left us on 5th February 2012. Four long years have passed and I still think I'll hear you whistle me down the Avenue like you used to do or that you have just popped out for a pint. That just show's how strong your presence is to us. You were always a force to be reckoned with and you still are.
"Many people enter our lives for just a little while. Others pause and plant flowers in our hearts that continue to bloom forever."
You would have been celebrating your 80th Birthday this year on the 28th February. We will lift a glass of Southern Comfort and Dry to you. I hope wherever you are they have Southern Comfort behind the bar but knowing you, you'll probably be running the establishment "Spirits Are Us" .
I'll Be Seeing You....."Till"...."Yours"......"
"Hello Tom, well here we are at some of your favourite places in DisneyWorld. We came for the wedding of Roxanne and Steven. We had to be dressed in Disney Costumes for her. I can't begin to imagine what you would have dressed in, with you being so shy and retiring. We are staying on The Boardwalk which you so admired when you were here. You would have loved it, but then again you have probably been here dividing your time between Bournemouth and Disney. Love you lots "Till" "Yours""

"Tom on the 11th October 2014 I fell and broke my knee in 4 places. I have been bed bound and plastered since. I've thought of you often with 2 broken hips and all the many health problems you had, the girls and I didn't regret a minute of the time we spent caring for you, just that we couldn't make you well again. I know if you had been here now I would have been spoiled rotten by you and nothing would have been too much trouble for you. I feel you close and that I am healing and getting stronger because of your prescience Tom. "Till". "Yours"."
